Improving the Integrity and Resilience of Maritime Navigation Workshop
GNSS has become the principal source of position, navigation and timing (PNT) information for safety and business‐critical professional applications at sea. PNT is also critical for modal integration of services and applications as goods flow from the sea, through a port, to the hinterland.
GNSS has concerning vulnerabilities, as highlighted in the 2018 Government Office for Science Blackett Review.
The MarRINav (Maritime Resilience and Integrity of Navigation) project will explore in depth maritime requirements for resilience and integrity and associated needs for accuracy, availability and continuity.
By engaging stakeholders with requirements analysis, the study will lay the foundations for the suitability and acceptance of PNT solutions of future critical infrastructure. While initially focusing on the UK maritime sector, we will ensure that outcomes are scalable and expandable to other application sectors, countries and regions.
MarRINav will hold a workshop on 15th May in London to explain the project to stakeholders and to capture their requirements, providing an opportunity for the maritime community to influence the direction of the project.
A follow-up workshop will be held in November to disseminate project results.
MarRINav is funded by the European Space Agency’s Navigation Innovation Support Programme (NAVISP). The consortium comprises Trinity House, NLA International, University of Nottingham, Taylor Airey, Terrafix Ltd, London Economics Ltd and KTN Ltd.
